running exe in browser which exe is already at client side how?
Posted on 2003-03-14
I want to execute exe (which is already installed at client machine) by the browser.
Eg, I have an application say weblinks.exe located (installed in client machine) at 'c:\program files\weblinks\weblinks.exe'. Suppose client visited our URL from browser http://www.xxx.com. Now in our site we have a button/link (This http is served by apache default ahaha.). now the user will click on the button/link then I need to execute the exe which ever he installed already in his machine(c:\program files\weblinks\weblinks.exe).
I have done this in the below but it does not work..
1) Configure SSL with apache.
2) in the anchor tag given <a href="c:\\program files\weblinks\weblinks.exe">weblink</a>
but when ever user is clicking on the link it does not do any thing. but when I open this html page normally in browser(with out fetching from server)..it works fine.
Please help me in this regard..I am in urgent need of it..
